The number of donations made on Giving Tuesday increased 5% from last year, with human services, faith-based organizations, and education receiving the most support.
Lakeland, FLA., Nov. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Qgiv, a leading provider of nonprofit fundraising technology, saw record-breaking participation on Giving Tuesday among their nonprofit clients. Nonprofits that fundraised using Qgiv’s online giving tools sustained giving momentum from 2021 and saw increases in overall dollars raised. Human services, faith-based organizations, and education raised the highest dollar amount this year, while public safety and disaster relief organizations, membership-driven organizations, and science and research organizations experienced the most fundraising growth from last year.
"Data from the Giving Tuesday Data Commons shows us that giving sentiment remains strong in the U.S. — 85% of people want to make a difference, and 68% of people say they trust nonprofits and the services they provide. Even in times of economic uncertainty, it's important for nonprofits to continue to engage their donors and ask for their support," said Todd Baylis, Qgiv president and co-founder. "There's no doubt the past year has been difficult for nonprofits. The Great Resignation and rising costs have heavily impacted our sector and the donors who support it. Despite these challenges, generosity continues to be strong. The nonprofits who continue to make appeals and participate in Giving Tuesday broaden their donor bases and dollars raised."
The total number of donations made on Giving Tuesday increased over 5% compared to 2021, but there was a decrease of 4% in the average donation amount. The largest donation made was $50,000 and the average donation amount was $151.
“The ability to raise money online with reliable and secure technology is paramount for nonprofits that choose to participate in Giving Tuesday,” said Chris Morata, Qgiv’s vice president of product development. “We continue to add innovative features to help nonprofits stay ahead of tech trends and evolving donor expectations surrounding online giving. Recently released features such as smart amounts and recurring donation prompts are just a few of the many ways we are aiding nonprofits in their pursuit to raise more money for their causes.”
